Although Sprint is still lagging behind when it comes to LTE coverage compared to Verizon and AT&T, that doesn't mean they're not looking to add more customers by offering aggressively competitive data plans as their coverage increases. As of November 11th, Sprint will be offering a whole new set of 4G LTE rate plans for tablets and here's what they look like:

  • 300MB for $14.99
  • 3GB for $34.99
  • 6GB for $49.99
  • 12GB for $79.99

Looking at the plans, you'll likely notice they're not any cheaper than the competition but they do offer more data allowance. 20 percent more in fact, according to Sprint who also notes their is no contract requirements for these plans.

In addition to the stand alone offerings, Sprint smartphone customers can add a tablet to their account and get a discounted plan that includes 1GB of data for only $15 per month or 100MB of data that will only cost $10.

Sprint introduces new 4G LTE tablet data plans starting November 11


Same price-point as vzw but without the LTE availability .. Also, can add a tablet to a vzw share plan for only ten bucks more...

I did read the whole article and I stand by what I stated... You two just didn't comprehend what I stated, but that's ok I guess..
Sprint does not have any real LTE availability. I ditched Sprint after a decade and was more than happy to lose over 500 bucks in EFTs because it really was worth it... When it comes to services I don't like spending money on something I can't really use.
Also, I rather spend $10 and share the huge data plan I have already than spend $10 for a measly 100 megs..

I wonder if this means Sprint is going to murder unlimited data on smartphone in the not too distant future.

I know Tmo offers unlimited data, but after a certain amount your stuck on EDGE until your billing cycle starts over.

They didn't do away with throttling, just simply added an option for truly unlimited to go alongside their throttled service.

1 they won't be ridding themselves of unlimited data anytime soon.

2 wtf is the sprint note 2??????

To say Sprint is lagging in LTE is an understatement.

I currently have Sprint, and why I love the unlimited data, LTE is a very picky beast. I often find myself having to switch down to 3G just to get a decent stable connection. So before anyone considers an LTE plan for their tablet really do research on how good it is in your area.

On the bright side they are trying hard to improve 4G with continued rollouts. So in the not so distant future perhaps this won't be a problem.

Do you have an EVO? You may want to consider that it may be your phone. I have an EVO that almost never has a LTE connection while my wife's GS3 is almost always connected to LTE now.

If you don't have an EVO... then I guess just ignore this post. :)

thats why i left them really... gonna take them 2+ years to get LTE where i am at LEAST. Went to tmobile and while they dont have LTE, their 3g (or what they call 4G) is SOO fast! WAY faster than anything i ever got on sprint 4G wimax for SURE! I may go back when they finish rolling out, they were a good carrier though.

Sprint LTE is lacking... but I did talk to a Rep on the phone today who told me that LA will go live on the 19th of November with 70 % of the city covered and the rest by the end of November... Keep on trying Sprint you can do it

They haven't had unlimited plans for their data cards in years, anyway. Not sure why this would be a shock or a sign that they are going to get rid of unlimited data on their phone plans.

Soft bank is gonna run the show now... you think they don't want a return on their investment. Unlimited will be gone sooner than later.
